The Waynflete Lower School physical education program focuses on fine and gross motor skills, confidence-building, teamwork—and fun.
Our students can’t stop talking about Scooterville, or Shipwreck, or new games from other cultures they are learning during Global Focus Week.
Children this age are filled with energy—and our teachers love keeping up with them. Lower School students get daily outdoor play in all kinds of weather. Mindful moments with yoga poses, stretches, and measured breathing. A solid introduction to the basic skills of team sports and plenty of pick-up games. And classroom spaces designed for kids on the move.
A springtime tradition, Field Day sends all Lower School students to the Fore River Fields for a full day of running, jumping, tumbling, and outdoor play. Giant parachute games. Three-legged races and silly relays. Water balloons, popsicles, and cheering for your friends.
Let it Snow
Lower School students spend recess outdoors in almost all weather. Whether they are stomping in rain puddles, sledding down the Lower Playground hill, or building sand castles or leaf piles, they are getting fresh air and fun while observing and appreciating the changing seasons.
